Charleston to Win, Stony Brook to Cover Spread

Charleston (26-7, 15-3) is the top seed in the Coastal Athletic Association Championship, having won the conference in the regular season. That could make Charleston an NCAAB best bet, but Stony Brook (20-14, 10-8) has had a strong tournament and could make things interesting.

In the semifinals, the Seawolves faced Hofstra, winning 63-59 in their third game in the tournament before the final. Being the top seed made things easier for the Charleston Cougars, who only played two games and beat Towson 61-56 in the last.

Stony Brook vs Charleston ATS Pick: Stony Brook +9½

There is a reason Charleston won the Coastal Athletic Association regular season and is one game away from punching its March Madness betting ticket. The Cougars have been arguably the best team in the conference, especially late in the season.

Charleston closed out the regular season with nine straight wins to earn the top seed and then won twice in the tournament. That is 11 consecutive wins for the Cougars, who have not lost since Feb. 2. That is a big reason why they should be able to keep that momentum going to beat Stony Brook in this championship game.

However, covering college basketball spreads might be a completely different challenge. So much tournament play is based on how well you are currently playing, and Stony Brook has found its groove.

Stony Brook has won six of its last seven games and covered the spread in each one. That includes the three tournament games the Seawolves had to play through, headlined by a double-overtime win over Drexel. While this might not lead to Stony Brook upsetting Charleston, it does show that it can keep the game close enough to cover the spread.


Stony Brook vs Charleston Over/Under Pick: Over 149

Like in the first meeting between these teams, there is a good chance that this game will hit the over. College basketball lines could lean toward the over in this game because both teams have strong offenses.

Charleston led the Coastal Athletic Association in points per game, averaging 80.4, while Stony Brook was fourth at 73.4. In addition, defenses roughly allowed the same number of points per game this season. Stony Brook allowed 72 points per game while Charleston let up a little more at 72.3.

With both defenses being somewhat average and the offense being solid, all signs point to this game hitting the over.
